The Grand County boys varsity baseball team dropped the first two games of the season, falling 1-7 to the Delta Rabbits Friday, March 6 and 6-12 to the Millard Eagles Saturday, March 7.

The Red Devils gave up a run in the first inning and tied it up in the fourth, but the Rabbits scored three in each of the next two innings to put the game away.

The boys had four hits, one fewer than Delta, and made three errors to Delta’s two.

The first inning proved to be too much for the Red Devils to overcome against Millard. Grand got a run in the first; Millard responded with nine of them. The first inning not withstanding, Grand played some respectable baseball at Millard.

The Red Devils tacked on a run in the second inning and added four more in the fourth. The Eagles scored a run in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings. Grand belted out 11 hits at Millard. Riley Davis banged out a triple and Tyler Lindsay nailed a double.

The team’s home opener is against Ben Lomond on Friday, March 13.
